Hi Clinton, nice to see you have joined the forum, I have never had much to do with a Chinon, I am sure someone here on the forum will be able to help.

Hi Clinton

Before interfering with any gate pressure settings, have you cleaned the gate thoroughly to remove any dust or debris caught anywhere in the film path or pressure plate?

That includes on the claw finger tips. Check that there isnt a ball of fluff caught there.

Try that and let us know if its still shaking.

I've been given a Chinon Sound 8000 that lights up but no transport movement. I'm tinkering with it as a bit of a personal challenge and to hopefully teach myself a little about projector mechanics.
